secretary of defense leon panetta who previously served as director of the cia weighed in about general david petraeus' sudden resignation. during a flight to australia, reporters asked if general petraeus could be prosecuted if it's determined he was having an affair while on active duty in the military. >> you know, i don't know. i don't know the answer to that. i guess i'm -- i'm reading the papers like you are to determine just, you know, what the committee finds out, what the ultimate investigation determines on that issue. we, you know, we obviously are going to, you know, watch this closely to determine just exactly, you know, when that took place. >> panetta also appeared to side with lawmakers who say the fbi should've informed them about the investigation sooner. >> that's another issue i think we ought to look at. you know, as a former director of the cia and having worked very closely with the intelligence committee, you know, i believe that there is a responsibility to make sure that the intelligence committees are informed of issues that could affect, you know, the securit

or leon panetta or even barack obama. these are tectonic plates that are moving in the middle east. and the idea that who the president decides to appoint as secretary of state is going to make a material difference in these things, no. >> does anyone have, do you think, does anyone have any real sense of where egypt might go in all of this? >> i think egypt, look, it's quarter to a third of the arab world. cairo is one of the historical centers of the arab world. we don't have a good reading on where these guys are going, the muslim brotherhood. i'm not sure they necessarily do. we don't know how much to take literally what they say and write. they've got their internal politics, the party, the government. there's issues between them and other forces in egypt. they came into government fairly narrowly. but they're clearly trying to deepen their base. so everyone's watching really closely what they're doing with the rewriting of egypt's constitution, how these people want to consolidate power. what they say in the middle east, it's one thing to win an election. that's the easy part

secretary leon panetta disclosed a dramatic turn in the petraeus case. fbi investigators had uncovered what the pentagon called potentially inappropriate communications between the general and jill kelley whom he and his wife got to know in tampa and were revealing between 20,000 and 30,000 pages of documents including e-mails over two years. officials say some were flirtatious, but the general strongly denies an improper relationship. the fbi discovered the e-mails during its investigation of kelley's e-mails, sparked by her complaints about anonymous threats which turned out to be from paula broadwell. they say they found no wrongdoing by general allen but turned the files over to the pentagon which monday ordered its inspector general to investigate. a social link between the two four-star generals, jill kelley who enjoyed socializing with the powerful in tampa while doing volunteer work for military families. she also gave people the impression she had some kind of state department status which officials say she does not. in fact, last weekend, she called police complaining about media

. >> do republicans fear that much more than the president? >> i think secretary panetta has made it clear that he said senator cane, the cuts are not possible. not only because of what they might do to national security but they're destabilizing and they don't allow planning. you take a lot of money out of the economy with those all defense jobs out of the country. >> josh, do you think this president is going to have a successful a second term as bill clinton did on welfare reform, balancing the budget, balancing it four years in a row? do you think we're going see that type of second term? >> i think it's a little early to say that. i think there's certainty the possible for that. look, as i write in the piece, he's got leverage on the fiscal cliff. i think there's good reason to think that a grand bargain is possible. it's certainly more likely than it was a year ago. we're closer now. the conditions are there for that to happen. so if he were to cap off his second term with historic tax and entitlement reform that would be a big deal. another thing, we're seeing will this already, the
